Know The Romantic Story Of The Rich Provenance Of Philippine Civet Coffee

Breathtaking is the aroma and unforgettable is the taste of the highly delectable Philippine civet coffee or the Kopi Luwak coffee. Sipping this scrumptious coffee in a cold wintry evening has its own joy. Syrupy mouth feel, muted acidity, heavy, and caramel body are few of the characteristics of civet coffee. However, the best part or rather the biggest attribute of this amazingly refreshing and toothsome coffee is its smooth aftertaste. And it's this mellow sweet aftertaste that adds to the ever-growing popularity of this truly delectable coffee.

Well if you are still wondering as to how the coffee got its name and want to know the story behind, here is it exclusively for you.

While you might be relishing your favourite civet coffee for years, you would hardly imagine the romantic story of its rich provenance that relates this coffee to the little civet. It happen so, the civet actually loves to eat the coffee cherries for its fleshy pulp. The cherries contain coffee beans. Now the pulp is eaten by the civet but beans remain intact. The beans while passing through the intestines of the little civet are imbued by the proteolytic enzymes, and as a result shorter peptides are made and free amino acids are released. The beans are defecated by the nocturnal mammal on the jungle floor from where these coffee beans are collected. The beans are then thoroughly washed, sundried, roasted, and brewed to give you that breathtaking taste and aroma.

Hope you enjoyed reading this amazing story!
